The focus of Contemporary Art lies on art from the second half of the 20th century, featuring both the stars and the broad diversity of art after 1945. In this year’s presentation of contemporary output at the ALBERTINA Museum, works by Anselm Kiefer, Gerhard Richter, Arnulf Rainer, Georg Baselitz, Alex Katz and Maria Lassnig, and others take centre-stage. Furthermore, a generous donation by Gottfried Helnwein has made it possible to show seven high-quality paintings by the famous Austrian artist at the exhibition.

Around 80 masterpieces serve to illustrate the multifaceted nature of postmodernism, ranging from Hyperrealism to abstraction and from color aesthetics to political themes, while also providing a clear impression of the complex parallel trends of the past few decades.

Featured artists:
Karel Appel | Georg Baselitz | Lucio Fontana | Sam Francis | Gottfried Helnwein | Hans Hofmann | Jörg Immendorff | Alex Katz | Anselm Kiefer | Yves Klein | Maria Lassnig | Roy Lichtenstein | Morris Louis | Markus Prachensky | Arnulf Rainer | Gerhard Richter | Hubert Scheibl | Sean Scully | Victor Vasarely | Andy Warhol | Tom Wesselmann
